What's cooler than a P-51?

Todays not so random aircraft sighting today is a P-51D. How cool is that? Well, not as cool as a P-51D being chased by 4 Harriers!  This beauty belongs to an Aggie who was in town for a meeting on campus and we knew he was coming in. So, working at the airport and having the wind tunnel take a huge dump this morning meant we had time to pile out onto the flight line for front row seats to see him come in. As we were watching him peel off from making a high speed pass down the runway, we heard quite the roar coming up behind us. Turned out to be four Harriers coming in to participate in the flyby this Saturday at the football game featuring the local sports franchise. Be sure to look over the tail of the P-51 in the video for the harrier making his landing.

 No sooner had we settled down to climbing all over the P-51 and we heard more noise as four more Harriers came in.


  1. Just saw a squadron of Marine Corps Harriers on the visiting apron here at Davis-Monthan. I wonder if they were the same ones?

  2. Greetings from Falls County,
    Wish I had known this one was coming in. I have encountered her before, but would have loved to become re-aquainted.
